Mike Skinner and Murkage present: Tonga

Critics' choice

This under-the radar party is run by one Mike Skinner (The Streets) and Manchester-based music and arts collective Murkage. Formerly held at the Victoria in Dalston, Tonga has found a new home in Stoke Newington's The Waiting Room, but the vibe is still the same: intimate and occasionally wild. Skinner told us in an interview that 'party bass' will be Tonga's main musical policy, so ready yourself for some seriously banging tunes.

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

There are times during this revival of ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers’ – adapted as a stage musical in the ’80s from the 1954 MGM film musical classic – that you feel like pinching yourself, just to check you’re not dreaming. From ‘Bless Your Beautiful Hide’ to ‘Sobbin’ Women’, it exists in a crazed bubble entirely of its own.
